Range and Habitat
Did you know?
»» The galah often remains with the same mate for life.
»» A young galah can fly as well as an adult; however, it tends to have crash landings.
»» The survival rate among new fledglings is very low. Only 10 out of 100 survive through their first winter. However, those that do survive usually live a long life.
»» Parents continue to feed their young for 6 to 8 weeks. While the parents are foraging for food, the young gather together in nearby woodland areas. The young can identify their parent's returning call and will fly back to the nest to be fed.
»» The galah is considered a pest to local farmers because of the crop damage the bird often causes.
